For Parents

Tapiolan Honka welcomes also players who do not speak Finnish. All teams have coaches with good English language skills and the global langauge of basketball will take care of the rest.

If you or your children are interested in starting basketball, please contact the head coach or team manager of the age category.  You'll find the contact information here. You can also contact the team office either by e-mail (toimisto@tapiolanhonka.fi) or by phone (+358 9 452 1024).

In short, the club offers

  • Toddler club is meant for boys and girls between the ages 1 and 3. The sessions consist of free playing with the parents, using the equipment provided by the school and Tapiolan Honka. Welcome to the world of somersaults, running, jumping, climbing, balancing and everything in between!
  • Sport Play School is for children between the ages 3 and 6. Sport play school is not yet basketball oriented, but instead we offer a wide variety of fun and sporty games. The most important objective is to support every child’s holistic development from his/her point of view and offer feelings of success.

In the afternoon club, the kids do their homework, eat a healthy snack, play and exercise indoors and outdoors - all this in a professional and safe environment. One of the main objectives is to add 1-2 hours of exercise to each kid's day.
